The basic recipe of two parts mayonnaise to one part ketchup has been around for years, served as a condiment with French fries and other fried finger foods. It’s commonly called “fry sauce,” but Heinz chefs added a few more ingredients to their version of the sauce, making it more sweet-and-sour than the common two-ingredient formula, and then they gave it a new name.
Heinz debuted Mayochup in September of 2018 following a carefully planned social media campaign that polled followers on whether or not they wanted Heinz to create the product. Final result: 55 percent said “yes.”
Now you can use my Mayochup copycat recipe to make your own mimicked condiment in a matter of minutes with these five common ingredients, a bowl, and a whisk. Use it on burgers and sandwiches, or as a dip for French fries and other fried foods.
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 3/4 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Stir gently with a whisk to mix, then cover the sauce and store it in your refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before using.
Makes 3/4 cup.
